Mattie Bainbridge is the alpha-female of her pack. Both her father and brother are dead and it is up to her to take a mate before one takes her. Meaning she better get her mind made up, or some big alpha male will make it up for her.
Anthony Ricci is the first-born son of Richard Ricci, the undisputed leader of a Purist pack. Anthony does not follow his father’s antiquated ideals about subservient females, but convincing Mattie of that is not going to be easy.
Mattie is not about to be pressured into mating a man she does not trust. Anthony may be the sexiest thing on foot or paw, but with his family history, she cannot consider him a potential mate. She refuses to be part of a Purist pack, where the females are nothing more than possessions to be passed around. Her physical attraction to him only makes it harder to maintain her convictions, and Anthony can be very persuasive. Anthony has no intention of sharing Mattie with his pack if she will be his mate, but that is a very big “if”. He must convince her of his honesty, and he can think of only one way to do it. But will it be enough to prove his love to her?
This may be a short story, but it definitely big on hot and sexy. Ms. Paige gives her characters a fantastic sense of humor that makes them so appealing to the reader, and their hard sexy bodies do not hurt either. Even the quirky canine characteristics she gives her characters are fantastic. Mattie and Anthony are a perfect match. Their alpha similarities only heighten the sparks between them. The storyline is fun, the sex very steamy, and the reader extremely satisfied.
